Thom Yorke Shares New Song from ‘Suspiria’ Soundtrack

Dario Argento’s classic film Suspiria is in many ways defined by its iconic Goblin soundtrack. Viewers simply cannot separate the images on screen from the haunting and abstract sounds which construct its unforgettable score. Luca Guadagnino, the director of the upcoming Suspiria remake, made the wise choice of trying something completely different for his upcoming motion picture. The result is a 25-track soundtrack composed by Thom Yorke of Radiohead. The alternative rock frontman posted a new song from his soundtrack today called “Suspirium,” which gives us a taste of what the new movie will sound like.

Composed primarily on piano with accents of the flute, Yorke’s track can be described using many of the same words which can be used to describe the original Goblin compositions. “Suspirium”‘s music is haunting and its lyrics are eerie (but they’re much more easily discernible than the chanting found within the Goblin tracks), and there’s more than a taste of Radiohead in there for good measure. With that said, the two productions still manage to be two completely different works of art. They both sound like something that can accompany the story and visuals of Suspiria, but they each get there by traveling different paths. You can turn up the volume and listen to the track below for yourself:

Yorke’s Suspiria soundtrack will drop in physical and digital retail stores on October 26th, 2018, courtesy of XL Records. The film will hit theaters on November 2nd, 2018. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on these exciting projects as they break!
